Marks a property as specifying a nested bean, whose properties should be checked for annotations.
This annotation should be attached to the getter method in Java or the property in Groovy. Annotations on setters or just the field in Java are ignored.
The implementation of the nested bean is tracked as an input, too.
This allows tracking behavior such as
Actions as task inputs.
This annotation supports
Iterable values by treating each element as a separate nested bean.
As a property name, the index of the element in the iterable prefixed by
$ is used, e.g.
If the element implements
Named, then the property name is composed of
Named.getName() and the index, e.g.
The ordering of the elements in the iterable is crucial for for reliable up-to-date checks and caching.
This annotation supports $
Map values by treating each value of the map as a separate nested bean.
The keys of the map are used as property names.
